A guided walk will start at 2.00pm at the gates to the main entrance to the reserve on the access track off the A49 opposite the turning to Steel Heath. The walk, which will last about 2 hours, will showcase the Silver-studded Blue butterflies – the common is the only site in the whole of the Midlands where this butterfly can be seen. The walk will also give people the opportunity to learn about the way the site is being restored after many years of arable cultivation, and it will end at the control tower.
Stephen Lewis, Butterfly Conservation’s volunteer warden, says: “The Silver-studded Blues are out in good numbers already this year and visitors come from far and wide with their cameras to see them. What is especially heartening is that the butterfly is now breeding on the former potato fields that have been restored to heathland. They are an iconic heathland species and they can be seen on the reserve in their hundreds.” For more details Stephen can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org or on 07900 886809.
